We just love the Barnstaple hotel. The staff, the food and the accommodation. We attended a works Christmas dinner and dance. The food was lovely as normal. The band and disco good. We are staying affordable Christmas. We are so looking forward to this. Well done one and all.

Everything about this place is American, from the position, on a retail park, to the really quite striking look, to the layout to the slightly tired, but perfectly clean and comfortable, rooms. I stayed in deepest winter, but in the summer, the two pools, especially the outdoor one, would be a big plus for a business stay. Room was warm...

An excellent place to stay when on business in Barnstable. The evening meal and breakfast were both very good. Very friendly service in the restaurant and reception areas. Indoor pool looked good for a swim but lack of time prevented me form using it.

Lovely room, nice and warm. Lovely warm swimming pool. Excellent food from the bar. Near a nice town centre. Would like to use this group of hotels again in a different area! Was decorated really nice for Christmas. Found it to be a very relaxing weekend. Nice being nice and warm when weather was really awful outside!

Average hotel, excellent staff, very helpful and attentive. Central heating in rooms very noisy. Food good. Rooms a good size and has everything needed. Get a room at the front or side of the hotel if you can.
